February 29, 2012 – Grumble, Grumble

There were a number of verses that spoke to me in today’s reading.   And the people complained in the hearing of the LORD about their misfortunes, and when the LORD heard it, his anger was kindled, and the fire of the LORD burned among them and consumed some outlying parts of the camp.(Numbers 11:1 … Continue reading

The Color Purple

“They must remove the ashes from the altar for sacrifices and cover the altar with a purple cloth.”  Numbers 4:13 I just love bright, vivid colors and although Numbers can be a dry book to read it is chock full of symbolism, much of it related to color.  When reading v.4:13 I was struck by … Continue reading

February 27, 2012 – Don’t be a Hobab

And Moses said to Hobab the son of Reuel the Midianite, Moses’ father-in-law, “We are setting out for the place of which the LORD said, ‘I will give it to you.’ Come with us, and we will do good to you, for the LORD has promised good to Israel.” But he said to him, “I … Continue reading

Check marks

Just viewed my post and there are no check marks shown—that was the purpose in my title. 😉  Just pretend the marks are there before each blessing that is listed. Thankful for getting to check mark my blessings, Mema Jeanne

February 24, 2012

Well, sweet sisters….I read today’s reading yesterday and came up flat. I woke this morning and all I wanted to do is praise our Heavenly Father, to worship Him and thank Him for His Word, His Son and His faithful love.  I had intentions of sharing a bit from Psalms 119 but when I turned … Continue reading

Thursday Feb 23….”Stop Your Whining!”

Every parent knows the sound of whining.  That sound of complaining that grates on your nerves.  But you know, the real irritation is the underlying cause – disobedience and discontentment.  In today’s reading, (Numbers 1& 2), we find the Isrealites moving from Mt Sinai towards Canaan.  They are grumbling and complaining at every turn.  Because … Continue reading

February 22, 2012 – If…then…

I grew up Catholic. We observed Ash Wednesday because it marked the beginning of Lent. It didn’t mean much to me then except that I knew my forehead was going to get dirty (sorry, total germophobe). Lent means a lot more to me now that I know my Jesus.   It seems fitting that the … Continue reading

Spring Cleaning

“This procedure will determine whether a person or object is ceremonially clean or unclean…” Leviticus 14:57 If the words mildew, scabby sores, bodily discharges or burnt offerings leave you a bit unnerved then the superficial reading of Leviticus will send you running in the opposite direction.  Honestly, if truth be told I didn’t greet today’s … Continue reading
